The Republic of Phualand is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Prime Minister Ethan with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 3.471 billion Phuanese have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fort Nogawa. The average income tax rate is 95.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Phualandian economy, worth 606 trillion Phua dollars a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 174,829 Phua dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Politicians always seem to take two steps forward then three steps back, invasive drug testing is now performed at elementary school sports days, the new national campaign exhorts men to "Show Some Class - Don't Sit On Your Ass", and oil executives can be seen reluctantly cleaning oil-soaked birds. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Phualand's national animal is the Dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Phualand is ranked 3,593rd in the world and 163rd in The North Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 61.83 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
